Today I’m sharing a giant printable. It’s a classroom set of the rhyming game, Rhyming Bingo!
One of the rhyming games my kids have enjoyed is the Rhyming Bingo I bought from a teacher supply store. But there are a few things about the game that bug me.
One thing is that some of the words that the teacher calls are the same as the pictures on the boards. So we always have to distinguish, “I said boat, but you can’t cover the picture of a boat. You have to cover something that rhymes with it. Do you have coat?” In this game, the set of calling words is different from any of the pictures on the boards.
Another thing that bugs me about our purchased game is that most of the words that you call are not represented on a board. Because of this, my kids often give up when they don’t see a rhyming picture right away. They just assume it isn’t there (because 75% of the time, it isn’t!). In my game, every board has every rhyme represented. So when you read the word fun, your child knows he has to find a rhyming picture.
I made this a giant set of 26 boards so that teachers could use this in their classrooms. If you’re teaching your child at home, you just need page 2 (the calling cards) and one or more boards.
